Podcasts: The boy who tried to kill Queen Elizabeth II and other stories


Did I ever tell you that I have a podcast? One of my passions is to speak to our grandparents, who were young people in the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s. I wrote some of the stories that were told to me, and these were narrated by some great people like the acclaimed musician Kuiyu, TV Star Brenda Wairimu and renowned actor, theatre maker and storyteller Ogutu Muraya. Here are the stories in one page – but you can catch them wherever you catch your podcasts. Tell me what you think of Living Memories, the podcasts by Al Kags.
